Why we can finish your garage floor before — or during — winter.
It’s winter. You wake up, brew the coffee and get ready to take on another day. Then it hits: you get to spend twenty minutes scraping ice off your windshield in the bitter cold because your garage is being finished. We’re shivering just thinking about that, but here’s why it happens and how you can avoid it.
The main issue at play here is this: the colder the temperature of your garage floor, the longer it takes for traditional epoxies to cure. This begins a domino effect of longer re-coat times and more icy mornings before your garage is finished and can return to service.
WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH POLYASPARTICS?
Global Garage Inc. specializes primarily in treating your garage floor with polyaspartic materials. While polyaspartic materials are a bit more expensive than epoxies, the quicker application time and less labor involved during installation result in an overall price that is frequently less than a similar epoxy floor.
Polyaspartics can be applied at much lower temperatures than epoxies thanks to a unique chemical reaction that creates its own heat during the curing process. Also unlike epoxies, subsequent coats can be applied while the previous ones are still wet. This saves us wait time for the drying/curing process and actually allows the materials to bond together more thoroughly to give you a much stronger finished product.
What saves us time, saves you time. Because polyaspartics cure so quickly, your garage can be put back to service the following day. Epoxies take much longer to cure, and can take several days to park on again.
Polyaspartics are also state of the art as far as quality is concerned. They are more durable, more flexible and more resistant to staining than other epoxies. In addition, they are more color-fast—where other treatment options tend to yellow over time, polyaspartics look as rich as they did the first day.
